I posted a question on Super User a few days back on a weekend and it has received no responses/views.

Can I delete that question and undelete it again to make it appear in the "Newest Questions" feed?

Will undeleting a question make it appear in the newest questions feed?


No. And 'bumping' posts like this would be a bit of a misuse of the site if it were possible.

If they question isn't getting any views / attention then that probably means the question itself isn't very good / clear. So best bet is to edit the the question itself to improve the quality, and make sure it's tagged appropriately. That will then push the question up to the top. That's the correct way to deal with these things.

If it's still not getting answers then perhaps people just don't know the answer. Constantly pushing it to the front of the queue isn't going to change things like that.

    You could also place a bounty on it if you have sufficient reputation to do so. – JonK Sep 3 '14 at 12:36
  • FWIW, deletion and undeletion don't bump – gnat Sep 3 '14 at 12:52

    Also, don't forget that bumping puts the question at the top of the active list, not newest. The latter only goes by the original posting date. – Adam Lear Sep 3 '14 at 13:37
  • Thank you for your answer. I had asked the question on a weekend late in the night. Probably just one of the reasons why my question got no views. Anyway, I have got my answer. Thank you. – Amogh Natu Sep 3 '14 at 13:55
